The Eddies had the tough task of having to follow up on one of the most punishing, exhilarating, out-and-out jaw-dropping amazing sets from San Francisco's own Thee Oh Sees, whom I was witnessing for the first time.  My friend tomzero couldn't decide whether they were indie or punk (I figure the band were fine with whatever category made you comfortable to put them in) but I did greatly enjoy seeing Brendan Suppression at work...hand in glove, and during 'Which Way To Go', up in the air crowdsurfing (preserved on video if you follow the link for the song) and by the time I got to see them again a couple of days later, their set was equally as compelling as TOS all-out sonic assault, which the video I shot only partially conveys, since it was all I could do to hang on to my iPhone, though tomzero got to hold it for 'Block Of Ice' while I flailed around like a madman along with a few dozen like-minded souls.
